It really is a dark looking building, previously the justice department before being taken over by the KGB. Quite a dark history. They brought in political prisoners during the night so as not to alarm the locals. They were taken to a cell where a...More

This museum provides insight in KGB ways of working. Chilling. It also is an ode to the many brave Lithuanian partizans. For decades they fought for their freedom which finally came after the 1989 Singing Revolution. I learned so much. As deed our teenage kids....More

The review of history is worthwhile for everyone to understand the past and prevent it from repeating itself. Very sad events, but also shows the brave Lithuanians we must remember.

We walked from the KGB museum to what I would call the centre of the city (decent shops, restaurants) in about 10 minutes. Another 10 minutes to the touristy areas.
